How i love doing this. Everything (well nearly everything)I was taught about using calf I have disregarded. The whole surface has been taken to task with sharp and rough things, the surface is not smooth. How the trads will hate this. The inlays are near crescent shapes (a reflection of the shape of the island described in the text) These in lays are left as untouched as possible, perhaps in their pure state.
Details of the gold tooling (what is left of it) the inlays and scratch marks.
